4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of the easiest drinking imperial pale ales I have had. Pour is copper in color with a large white head that pillows and last. Aroma is crisp,clean and hoppy. Very flavorful but not a taste bud killer hoppy and a little sweet. Flavor stay on your palate but in a good way.

Rampant is a fine beer to bring to your wife's friend's house for brunch. It will be widely enjoyed with little pushback. Among dudes that wear shirts with a hop pun on them, this beer will be scorned.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light yellow gold in color. Super light and transparent for an Imperial IPA. Expected darker. This is super light. Nose of honeycomb and pine cone. Graham cracker, light cereal and malt. Mellow. Easy drinking. Doesn’t strike me as Imperial. Good though.Not complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden (not copper) with a solid layer of creamy white head. There is a floral soapy hop dominance in both the aroma and taste. Soft texture and quite drinkable. A nice affordable 6-pack...I really feel like NB redeemed an otherwise dull set of releases as of late.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tulip at DTW airport bar. Nice touch for an airport. Aroma is fruit/peach forward. Appearance is surprisingly light (lighter than hopslam in color). Hop flavors are really tremendous and complex. New favorite from new Belgium here and I am not generally a big fan. Very easy drinking (dangerously so). Big win here.

At Jerry’s in Andersonville. Pale golden color. Not very hoppy and not very malty for an DIPA. Decent but nothing super great. Serving: Cask

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear medium golden. Good size bubbles and a nice off white head. Nice hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Very smooth in the mouth and more crisp than many imperial IPAs. Nice bitter hops with grass and maybe a bit of grapefruit. Pretty good beer overall.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Citrus, grassy, orange, hoppy, fruity flavors. Grassy, floral, hoppy flavors. Another solid IPA from New Belgium, but it isn’t something that I am going to go out of my way to get again.
